Hammer of The Last Two in a recent interview with Doctor Cann on Happy FM’s Showbiz Xtra, has revealed he wished BET would have chosen two rappers instead of a singer and a rapper.
“I wish two rappers were nominated so they could dominate the cypher. It’s not about singing, it’s more about rap. On that note, I pictured two of our best rappers to actually go there and prove to them who we are, but, unfortunately, the BET is broader than rap, so it’s well deserved.
“I don’t know the procedure they used to pick Stonebwoy, but I understand they have committees responsible for choosing the artists so BET reviews and chooses the artiste but in Ghana I’m not sure who is part of the committee, but I know KKD used to be part but I don’t know if he is still part of it.
“It’s not that I don’t agree with the committee that did the choosing, but everyone has their opinion.
“But the fact that it’s BET, two of our rappers could have gone and proved that we have real rappers in Ghana, but a singer and rapper is not the combination I wished for.
“But Stonebwoy is a solid artist and it doesn’t hurt me but I was hoping we would have two rappers there. But our chances are high. Sarkodie is one of the Best things that ever happened to Africa. I think the BET realized that guy is the closest to the Grammy right now.
“If it’s based on votes, then I guess our media men should hype it so people vote but if it’s based on what BET chooses, then I think the decision has already been made and it will be a luxury trip for the boys which they can use network for some collaborations.”
